Welcome to my website!

This is a place where I ponder a variety of subjects that can range from the highly mysterious to the completely obvious & normal.

Of course, since I am an astrologer, a lot of my reference points are…astrolgical. But I am also a student of history, both ancient & recent, so at times I dip into that side of the narrative as well.

Astrology, is, actually, based on historical data & to truly understand the cosmos via the tool of astrology, one does have to take into account what has happened in the past so that the future can be made more clear.

A little about me…

I am, first and foremost, a MOTHER. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I have learned from my children! I have gotten a first hand, ‘in the raw’ account of some of the various astrological combos by observing the trajectory that my children’s lives have taken.

My first child was born under the solar sign of Taurus with a Scorpio Moon, just past the Full Point, & a Sagittarius ascendant. She taught me what patience, determination, optimism & core grit look like in real life terms.

My second child was born under the solar sign of Sagittarius with a New Moon in Capricorn & a Scorpio ascendant. She taught me what courage, resolve, & sadly, self-destruction look like in real life terms.

My third child was born under the solar sign of Pisces with a New Moon in Taurus & a Cancer ascendant. He showed me truths about intuition, dependability & loyalty.

My baby was born under the solar sign of Leo, with a Waning Crescent Moon in Gemini & a Cancer ascendant. She gave me insight into the qualities of self-assertiveness, protectiveness & the ability to let go of hurtfull emotions.

Each of these souls, in their own way, enhanced my understanding of how energetic combinations might work. I am grateful that I was blessed by their presence in my life. 

I am also a business person. I have never worked FOR anyone except the customers that I served. There was a time when I had people working at the business that I created. That denser vibrational life experience taught me a lot about human nature, giving & receiving & being responsible for EVERY action taken. When money is involved, one must be attentive to detail!

Academically, I studied psychology & history in university. I very quickly realized that i was way too ornery to ever fit into established protocols within either of those fields. Too many rules for someone with Uranus on her Midheaven. However, the knowledge gained from taking all those courses has definitely served me well in my current undertaking.

And finally, I am a Certified Evolutionary Astrologer. I found Jeffrey Wolf Green ‘by accident’ while searching for an astrology book in an out of the way eclectic bookstore way back in the previous century. I sat down, opened the book, & was astonished that the page that I opened was a description, in Jeffrey’s unique style, about MY natal Venus placement. I knew that was an indicator TO ME, on a deep & personal level, that this was the take on astrology that suited me best in the work that I was meant to do. Obviously, I was already a seeker at this point & had been studying astrology, in general, for many years. That serrendipitous encounter with Jeffrey via his book on Pluto, was the last bit of cement in the metaphysical foundation that I was constructing for myself. In short order, I enrolled in his class & proceded to plough my way through the intricacies of the Evolutionary Astrology model of chart analysis. I cherish the diploma that I received from the man, himself, signed by him when the Sun was exactly conjunct my natal Midheaven. Astrologers do that kind of thing!

So, I’m pleased to extend an invitation to YOU to join me in the adventure of self-actualization using the magical lens of astrology.

As an Evolutionary Astrologer, I focus on the internal dynamic structure of the self in all of its layered parts, the ego, the akashic storehouse, the soul, and the connection to spirit. As I unfold the petals of your soul flower (the birth mandala or natal horoscope) using the gentle but incisive tool of astrology, we, together, take a journey to the very heart of your being.

As I mirror you back to yourself, you can look into the delicate and beautiful structure of that self through my astrologically trained eyes. You may be surprised at what you see, encouraged by what you see, enlightened by what you see and even delighted by what you see. And always, it is painless and comforting.

We are all here on a journey into self-actualization—that is, becoming the purest expression of our inner potential. Truly, we are, all of us, “children of the goddess” and it is when we finally understand what that really means that we set ourselves free TO BE.

Life is, in the final analysis, relative. Some of us came to play on the main stage, others are here standing & waiting in the wings, some are still in rehearsal or part of the production team and others prefer to be a member of the audience. No matter our place in the greater sphere of things, we all have the desire to be in a place of grace, to walk in peace and compassion. (Yes, even those among us who may appear to be booing and hissing insults from the darkness have that desire somewhere in their psyche.) The purpose of my work is to provide you with insights, encouragements and strategies that can facilitate you to find your own unique pathway into grace and goodness.

We all have one A.I.M. in common.

As we refine our state of AWARENESS,

We gain a clarity in terms of INTENTION.

When our INTENTION is clear & true in form & content,

we unleash the power of MANIFESTATION in our lives.


AWARENESS leads  to a clarity of

INTENTION which then results in literal


Simple & easy & not so simple & not so easy…

There’s a bunch of stuff to read under the headings, ‘star stuff’ & ‘what the Moon’.

Go ahead, dip in & if you think there might be something here that you can use, please go ahead and use it.


Be Blessed Always,
Christina Rai

Evolutionary Astrology
Astrology is the science of the stars.  There is an ongoing celestial dance that we can observe from our vantage point on the earth.

This dance is a mirror of the very same dance that occurs within both the collective body, human society, and the individual body, each human soul. By understanding the language of astrology, we are able to gain insight into the construct of reality as represented by the celestial dance, whether, collective or personal.

Evolutionary Astrology explores the reality construct from a broad and very deep level. The focus is internal rather than external. Using this precise analytical tool, we can begin to understand:

  • the needs of the soul
  • the tools it has available to implement soul intention and serve these needs
  • any issues that must be integrated to create harmony within the energy system
  • a snapshot of prior learning that can illuminate and enhance the process

When we understand why we are here, we can more consciously work with flow. Coming to a place of realization that the ego is merely a vehicle for change and shift and that it is the SOUL that continues through ongoing lives, totally shifts perspective. We are more able to address the reactive elements of ego desire and focus more wholly on spiritual goals rather than material ones.

This is not to say that material reality is minimized by any account! We are here, on this plane, to have the ‘material’ experience. The key, however, is to live ‘in spirit’ while traveling ‘in the flesh’.  EA provides us with the kind of insights and understandings that make this complex journey of ‘spirit in flesh’ that much easier or, in some cases, just plain doable.

Akashic Record
Since energy cannot be destroyed, and thoughts and actions are merely energy, there is a storehouse of all thought and all action. This is the akashic record. So, just as there is a collective consciousness or mind, there is also a collective memory.

There are sensitives who are able to access the akashic record. Edgar Cayce, is, perhaps, the most well-known. However, anyone who is on a spiritual pathway can work with past life memory to a greater or lesser degree. As always, it is imperative that when you do move into the akashic memory, you remained detached, and remember that it is the essence of whatever experience you are having through recall that is important and not the ego related specifics. You are not your past life. Your past life is merely a storehouse of tools that you can access when needed.

Birth Mandala
This is my term for the natal horoscope. Mandala means circle and when I was first studying astrology, I felt that this form of the horoscope, usually represented as a circle, was evocative of what I understood a mandala to be. Within this circle, there was a representation of an energy, an energy that resulted in an expression, that is a life journey.

Natal Horoscope
What astrologers work with when they do a reading. Natal refers to birth.Horoscope literally means Hour Keeper, and refers to the “hour’ that you were born.  It “keeps” a representation of the pattern that arranged itself cosmically at the exact moment of your birth. This pattern yields a vast amount of information when you are able to ‘read’ it.
